Assigning a points system to track which disc manufacturers are performing the "best" throughout any given season
February 11, 2020 by Bennett Wineka in Analysis with 0 comments
A couple of episodes ago on the Upshot podcast, a discussion started around disc manufacturers sponsoring professional players and how to properly judge the overall results of said sponsored players as it relates to “team success.”
Ideas were tossed around, including a matchplay or Presidents Cup-style event made up of sponsor teams duking it out for a brand crown, if you will. While the potential for a new, unsanctioned battle royale sounded fun, we thought instead we could judge the companies using results already at our disposal.
That’s why we’ve developed our Manufacturers’ Cup, an unbiased look at “team” performance during the season by assigning points to quality finishes at elite events.
